As part of its important conservation and research effort, The Mariners’ Museum recently acquired the HD-CR 35 Computed Radiography system and D-Tect X software to replace much of their existing X-ray capability, improving efficiency and flexibility.
ATTAR has been using DÜRR NDT computed radiography scanners since 2015 and more recently the DRC 2430 NDT high-resolution flat panel detector since 2019. The systems are used primarily for digital radiography training targeting the industrial and engineering sectors.
For an optimal digital workflow in radiographic testing (RT), the X-ray inspection software D-Tect X can be integrated with the NDT management software DRIVE NDT. The closely meshed interaction between DRIVE NDT and D-Tect X means that a large part of the process takes place automatically.
The role of metallic screens in computed radiography for controlling scattered radiation is very well-known. This paper extends this topic further and quantitatively investigates how image quality in terms of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and basic spatial resolution (SRb) is influenced by metallic screens when Iridium-192 is used as the radiation source.
As standards become increasingly important in radiographic testing, knowing how to properly apply these standards in real-world applications is now more crucial than ever. Learn how to apply the ISO 17636-2 standard using a steel weld plate as an example and shorten your time to a high-quality image.

As the digitization of X-ray technology continues to expand in the NDT inspection world, many manual inspection tasks can now be fully automated. The main benefits are a significant increase in productivity and efficiency as well as higher end-product quality.
